BOGALUSA, La. (AP) – Thirteen people were shot Saturday night as a large group gathered in a Louisiana city for a memorial service for a man killed earlier this week, authorities said.
No one was killed, and one person was in critical condition after the 9:15 p.m. shooting in Bogalusa, police said. Bogalusa is about 70 miles northeast of New Orleans.
The crowd was gathered to remember Dominique James, who was missing for a day before being found dead Friday in a car, investigators said.
James’ death is considered a homicide, but police have not released additional details.
No arrests have been made in the memorial service shooting, and police said in a statement they haven’t had witnesses give them information either.
